    Sometimes I wonder what we would ever do without the Net. It has become such a valuable and useful commodity.

    Anyone have any interesting things happen to them because of the Internet?

    Did you make a ton of money selling junk on ebay?
    Did you meet your husband/wife/girlfriend online?
    Do you have a successful/out of the ordinary online business? (begging for money through craig's list even)
    etc.

    The only thing I can say is that I met one of my very best friends online. He happened to be living oversees in my home country. So when I went back to visit we met face-to-face for the first time and we have been close ever since. I'm so grateful for that opportunity. Alright enough with the mushy stuff

        I run a weird website about things people remember fondly from the 80's.
        When I die, I want to die peacefully, in my sleep, like my grandpa did. Not like the screaming passengers in his car.

            I'm rather new to the internet myself.

            I wasn't allowed to go on it, since my father is always on call and our internet service takes up a phone line. So up until recently (since I left home for college) I only used the internet for writing reports.

                    Yeah, if I did not run a few websites I would probably just refer to my computer as "the porn box".

                      aside from a romantic fling I once had (you shouldve heard the stories this guy told me!)...

                      ...the internet has fried my brain into a pile of mush!

                          I find things that nobody else remembered and i don't feel like I made it up.

                            Hm. Well this is an odd net story, I guess. Some years ago I went to an anime con called Otakon '98, so I was like 15 at the time. My friends and I went in costume and had an absolute fucking BLAST. When I got back I checked my e-mail and there's a message from this guy all like, "Hey sweetie, I saw you at Otakon in your little Sailor V costume and you looked so hot. I recognized you from your web site. I was with the guy dressed as Mario." then went on about how I should go up to New York so I could hook-up with him.

                              You should have been all "oh, I'm sorry...I don't date plumbers". Or not. Meh, nevermind.
